Crash

 

continued

Like Geddes west of US-23. "It's two lanes, and when the traffic backs up, people are always jumping out of line and getting hit," explains Scott, a twelve-year AAPD veteran. "And then there are the rear-enders. I took three separate accidents there in a couple of hours last week."

It's the same on Washtenaw, he says, "except there are more lanes and more accidents. It's bumper to bumper, people get distracted, and they hit. Or people drive out of Whole Foods and don't see somebody coming at them in the turn lane, and they hit. But, really, any heavily trafficked road during rush hour, there's going to be accidents."

The day I rode with Scott, he responded to the scene of an accident across from the Forest Avenue parking structure. A tiny teenager in tight jeans and a pink jacket stood in the street with a stunned look on her face. Her beat-up Nissan Maxima was wedged between a half-knocked-over tree and a Chevy minivan.

She spoke only Spanish, so Scott, who is bilingual, handled the interview.
